~Celebration give away~

July 7th is my birthday and I really have been lacking in posting due to yr end stuff and just how busy summer gets (yes, I will be posting more regular soon) so my origional intention was to post some candy when I hit 20k but now I am passed that so we'll call it a b-day celebration!

The give away is for the custom built shadow box style ribbon holder that my dear hubby makes (pictured below) (ribbon not included).


To see details of size look down the side toward the bottom. To enter...just leave a comment and check back Sunday to see if you won;) You can post it on your blog too (if you want)...the more comments the merrier plus it will help me decide to repeat this give away or not when I hit another mile stone.

Ohhh and I just discovered that Allison shares my same b-day so if you haven't gone over to wish her a happy birthday make sure you do so by the 7th...she has a blog give away going on too.

What talented husbands we have. Mine made me a ribbon bow maker
with moveable pegs to make different size bows for my cards.
This is a very generous candy offering. Hope you receive lots of candy on your birthday too.

I have been looking at this now for
several months, I really want it, but other things have come up to spend money on, like a leaking roof, broken stove, when it rains it pours. (Insert sad pouty face)
Love reading your blog and love your cards.
Have a great b-celebration.
